Statement: I've been an administrator here for only a couple of months, but I've been an administrator on the English Wikipedia for more than two and a half years. More importantly, I've had Oversight access on en.wiki for more than five months, handling mailing list requests quickly and efficiently due to my day job, which has me by my email pretty much all day. I've already verified my identity with the WMF. I'd like to bring my Oversight experience over to this project as well. EVula// talk // ☯ // 17:33, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
Q: You have various roles on various Wikis, as you've stated. Would you be able to commit enough time to this particular Wikipedia if you were made OS here as well? The Rambling Man (talk) 16:48, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
A: Because I'm by my email all day, I can jump on individual reports as they come in (assuming there's a mailing list, similar to the list for en.wiki, or if someone emails me directly) and am usually idling on AIM all day, so I can address oversightable items even if I'm not "checking" the project regularly (ie: looking at my watchlist or RC). Even when I'm less-than-active on enwiki, I still try to take care of Oversight requests if I get to them in time. EVula// talk // ☯ // 17:01, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm not going to support or oppose, not that it will make any difference, due to my views that these elections are being improperly conducted. We should not be extending any time periods to get a required amount of votes - that's why we weren't going to start until September. I think we have some power hungry people wanting to get these started early...Goblin 13:04, 10 August 2009 (UTC) I ♥ Nifky!
Sorry for replying here; this is just where I saw the comment. You do realise stewards are changing their rights here nearly every day these days? We were originally going to wait, but after the cesspool of oversightable nonsense that was coming to Simple, we decided to get the ball rolling. Power hunger didn't even feature in this decision, at all. PeterSymonds (talk) 13:06, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
Struck the power hunger comment per what i've been told. I'm aware that oversight is needed, and I support /that/, I just don't support the way in which these elections are being held, and therefore it would be hypocritical of me to do anything other than comment.
